The Hundred Acre Wood
04 Feb 2019
Hundred Acre Wood is a part of the fictional land inhabited by Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Winnie-the-Pooh series of children's stories by author A. A. Milne, and has provided the inspiration for the naming of our new Kindergarten spaces for 2019.
With the theme of ‘Imagination’, all of the Early Stage 1 Learning Spaces will now be known by specific “Winnie-the-Pooh” inspired names. Pooh and his friends espouse many values that we should all aspire to: kindness, friendship, empathy and gratitude.
They are inclusive and think in a positive way. Pooh says, “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.” Wise words from a old bear who is big of heart.
And so, our two Kindergarten groups will be known as Kangas and Roos and their learning spaces are the Kanga Inquiry Hub and the Roo Inquiry Hub.
The makerspace is Tiggers’ Artelier and the undercover soft-fall space is Hundred Acre Wood. There will also be a colourful path connecting the CELC to the School of Foundations which will be known as Piglet’s Bridge with the boulevarde to lead down to a (soon to be built) playground called, Christopher Robin Way.
Eeyore, Owl and Rabbit haven’t been forgotten, with the breakout spaces being named Eeyore’s Place and Owl’s Hollow and our fabulous cubby house is Rabbit’s Burrow!
We know our students will all enjoy their brand new learning spaces and look to Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends for some valuable life lessons.
